Snookery And The Great Glowing Acorn tells the power of appreciation in first book of the series that offers a contemporary spin on the "golden rules" for kids and family
Beverly Hills, CA, Nov 3, 2010 -- St. John-Fisher Entertainment, a rising star in the children and family publishing and multimedia market creating innovative content across all media platforms, announced today the release of Stewart St. John's new children's illustrated book, Snookery And The Great Glowing Acorn.
The award-winning children's television writer/director and visionary behind the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers wrote Snookery And The Great Glowing Acorn as a picture book aimed at teaching a new generation the "golden rules" through the magic and wonder of an inspirational talking squirrel, Snookery Snicklehorn.
"The golden rules are about treating ourselves and each other with respect," St. John said.
"They aren't so much rules as they are ways of being, things I learned growing up and something I wanted to impart to children growing up today."
Snookery And The Great Glowing Acorn is available directly from the web site SnookeryBookery.com -- http://www.snookerybookery.com -- or through Amazon.com. "We launched a really fun, interactive web site for kids to visit and parents to order the book through," said St. John.
"Snookery is a positive, furry chap who likes to takes naps," St. John explained about the story, the first in a planned series of books collectively called The Magical Adventures of Snookery Snicklehorn. "But one day he hears grumbling from the town below and discovers a young boy who's upset about being housebound on a snowy day. So he teaches the boy about the power of appreciation, and gives the child a whole new perspective on life as they embark on a magical journey together."
Snookery And The Great Glowing Acorn is seventy-six pages and filled with gorgeous illustrations by leading artist Joan Perrin-Falquet. Perrin-Falquet is well-known to inspirational audiences for her work with Louise L. Hay and Hay House on books, audio books, calendars and gifts.
"When Stewart asked me to illustrate his first picture book I was thrilled," said Perrin- Falquet, whose husband and twin boys were enraptured with the magical words of the book from day one. "I'd been wanting to work on a children's book for a very long time and the opportunity to work with Stewart was something I couldn't pass up."
St. John made the decision to publish the book through his publishing company St. John- Fisher Publications, a small independent publishing and packaging company whose focus is on creating content aimed at kids and family.
"Family entertainment is what I know best," said St. John, whose work has included children's animation, pioneering online and mobile content creation, as well as directing feature films and composing musical scores. "I'm a storyteller at my core. No matter what platform or technology is out there, I love to create and will keep going as long as I have life inside of me!"
